    Historic Paul Revere-Printed Strip of Three 1778 Codfish Notes

    Massachusetts October 16, 1778 Vertical Strip of Three 6d, 1s 6d, 2s PMG Choice Uncirculated 64.
    A beautiful strip of Codfish notes. All three notes and the strip itself have earned the PMG 64 grade. In the early 70's there were perhaps a dozen strips from this issue floating about the marketplace, many of which had weakly printed backs. This strip, unlike most of the others, is boldly printed on both sides. Many of the strips have been cut up to create high-grade individual notes, and those that have not been cut have been absorbed into long-term collections, as they are almost never seen on today's market. The backs of these Codfish notes were printed by Thomas Fleet using cast cuts, and were often weak and/or smeared. On this strip, both sides are razor sharp, and the smearing is very minimal. The face plate was engraved by Paul Revere, and the faces were printed by him. Our most recent sale of one of these strips graded 63 realized $5,287 at our 2015 FUN Auction.
